House of the Sun - Haleakala
One of the best sunrises you'll ever experience and I've been fortunate to do it twice. The day starts with hoodies and jackets and as soon as the sun came up we hopped on our bikes and started making our way down. We removed layer after layer and made it back to sea level just in time for breakfast in our shorts and t-shirts. Hope you're a morning person though - the 2am wake up call can be brutal. Coffee for the two hour drive up and good conversation will make it all worth the wait.

Summit Mt. Haleakala
Although hard-core folks take the long way up the 10,000 feet to the summit of Mt. Haleakala, you can drive up and hike down in the volcanic crater. If you time yourself right, you can catch sunset from above the clouds.
